Since I first started having pain in my hip over 4 years ago, I have been in fear of the increasing pain and lack of mobility. I was sure I would never be able to run, wrestle, bike … with my kids again. After the tumor was diagnosed and then removed last January, (along with 80% of my Gluteus Medius muscle and parts of the gluteus minimus, maximus, and piriformis) I was sure I would not be able to do all the things-a young mother should be able to.
I just wanted to thank you for the Cellercise® tramp. My sister was able to bring it to me here in AZ early in June and “it could not have come at a better time. I had finished my physical therapy in the office (I could walk without a limp) and was on my own. The lunges and squats I had been doing were causing pain and inflammation in my knees and I was having a hard time getting to the gym as often as required. I was beginning to feel stiff and sore all over again and the thought of a life of daily physical therapy was dragging me down. I just wanted to have my life back free of pain.
I have been using the Cellercise® (not as consistently as I should) with wonderful results. I only have to spend a few min and it makes all the difference. On days that I do not I am stiff and my hip drags, but even 5 min in the morning loosens and strengthens enough to get me though the day, and I don’t have any of the knee or ankle pain that I was battling with the weights at the gym. But, the most important thing, is that I can do it at home – no finding babysitters – which is a must with a military husband that is often called away for periods of time!!! We have just moved to a home on the Army Post this month and so now I have a place to keep it out all the time and I am able to spend a few min several times a day.
I am so grateful for your kindness in sending this. It really has given me my life back. I know that as I continue to use it, I will be able to keep up with my kids throughout. their life and perhaps keep me out of a wheelchair as I get old! I have hope of continuing to do the things I so enjoyed before tumor and surgery like biking, backpacking, and dancing with my husband!
